Luca’s talent cannot be confined to a fence. He is a musician-composer for recitals and theatrical work, a professional anatomy illustrator, and a photographer. In his career as a freelance for the prestigious Condé Nast (Uomo Vogue, Maison et Jardin, Vogue Italia, Casa Vogue) he has shooted really everything: portraits, food, interior design, architecture, jewels. Then in 2015 he started working on “synchronicity”: 3d photo mosaics hand cut out, based on photographic family’s memory and photos of cities and landscapes.
Now he is dedicated to “Floors”, a research on road’s concrete, asphalt, and pavements with the aim to “codify the interminable genome of our existence, written on the land on which we walk.”
“Floors is my latest photographic research. It is an exploration of our culture, habits, and history, which I stumbled upon while walking on the streets of the world. Roads are a testimony of our existence, an infinite history book that transcends down generations the violence, accidents, beauty, and complexity of humankind better than any monument ever will. They are a graphic memory of our times; a disorganized archive of our civilization that continuously morphs and amalgamates the ancient with the new.
I started this project a year ago, but I have been looking at the ground my entire life, finding extracts of people’s lives, precious treasures, and art. I call it “Floors” because that’s where we walk barefoot, where we feel at home, and that’s the sense I’d like to transmit with this work about the world. Every street has its own DNA, made up of its unique history and heritage–no two are the same. This work aims to codify the interminable genome of our existence, written on the land on which we walk. All pictures are spontaneous and taken in just a few seconds. What you see is exactly what I encounter, taken simply with my iPhone, on the spot.”
